Best bet is to ignore prices and names but spend some time in a dive shop trying masks and seeing which is most comfortable. You can spend a fortune and find its useless cos it dont fit your face.

buying a mask that fit will comfy and stay comfy for a while i've found is not easy
go to a couple of dive shops and try everything they have

personally i find the frameless masks more comfortable

it's the top of the nose, between your eyebrows that get's me after a long dive, that's why i go with the frameless, less up there to get in the way

without looking i think i have the oceanic ice

yep again go to a couple of dive shops and try on, i just bought one that cost about £35 but then had to have prescription lenses fitted which took the price up to £101 :eek:

if you could make it down to the NEC there's a dive show coming up i think
that'd be the ebst place to go looking for masks, as you will find everything on the market avaliable, and cheaper than you can buy it in dive shops
